Smashwords Interview

Describe your desk
I make use of any and every spare moment of time that I have available to write, whether it is waiting at the dentist or in line at the post office. I am not limited to a specific work area, but I like to seek out spaces, places and people who inspire me. It is only when I get to the final stages of writing a piece that I would spend time at my work station which is situated right in the center of our cottage.
What are you working on next?
I am currently working on a series of short stories on urban farming and self-sustainable living; as well as a series of essay styled short stories about co-dependency in relationships.
